Trainer Don Von Hemel is having a bang-up meet at Remington Park, where he won the $175,000 Governor’s Cup with Smack Smack on Aug. 15 and the $75,225 Ricks Memorial with Ghost Locket on Sept. 27. Von Hemel, who through Sunday had an 8-for-21 record at the meet, also won the track’s allowance feature Oct. 7 with Prue. This has all been achieved with an eight-horse stable and in the trainer’s ninth decade.
